VentraIP Australia Acquires Servers Australia Shared Hosting
VentraIP Australia, the largest independent domain name registrar in Australia, and Servers Australia, the largest dedicated server provider in Australia, have today announced an industry-first strategic agreement that will see the companies work together to focus on their respective target markets.
The agreement will see nearly 4,000 shared web hosting customers currently with Servers Australia acquired by VentraIP Australia and migrated to their hosting platform. In addition, VentraIP Australia will no longer sell dedicated servers and will market Servers Australia’s dedicated server products to their customer base.
VentraIP Australia Chief Executive Officer, Angelo Giuffrida, said the agreement and customer acquisition would be mutually beneficial for both companies and customers alike.
“In an industry which lacks leadership and teamwork we are very pleased to be able to work with Jared and the team at Servers Australia to allow us to both deliver a higher level of service to our respective customers”.
“Servers Australia has one of the best-dedicated server platforms in Australia and we will be proud to market it to our customers when they outgrow our shared hosting or virtual server products”, said Mr Giuffrida.
Servers Australia Chief Executive Officer, Jared Hirst, said the agreement and sale of his shared web hosting customers would allow his company to streamline its internal processes and move forward with a greater focus on their core product as the company prepares to make a further major announcement in the coming weeks.
“Dedicated servers are our bread and butter, and we are very excited to be able to put our full attention on extending our product range while chasing new opportunities in the market, with the added benefit of VentraIP Australia referring their customers who require dedicated servers our way”.
“I am very confident that Angelo and the team at VentraIP Australia will take great care of our shared hosting customers and be able to offer them a whole new suite of additional products and services to continue to grow their businesses”, he said.
Both companies share similar business models and cultures with both making the annual CRN Fast 50 list for 2015. Both CEO’s also hinted at further announcements from their companies in the near future.
